As far as I’m concerned, the demise of Dede Scozzafava is a prime example of how Conservatives need to take back the Republican Party. Purge the liberals, and send them packing to the socialist Democrats.
Will the NY-23 seat go to a Democrat? Maybe. Will the Democrat be a liberal? Well, it IS New York we’re talking about, so yeah.
So, you might be asking yourself, “How is this good for America?”
The answer is pretty simple: Rome wasn’t built in a day. Let’s face it, there is NO alternative to the Democrat Party. And let’s face another fact: the Democrat Party is controlled entirely by radical Marxists. Van Jones proudly claimed he was a communist. Anita Dunn claimed that Mao was one of her “favorite political philosophers.” From Barney Frank, to Harry Reid, all the way over to Nancy “The Hag” Pelosi hard line socialists are now in control of the Democrat party, and the nation.
And there is little doubt in my mind that if John McCain were in office today, there would only be a modest impediment to these vicious little Marxist-dictator-wannabes and their fascist agenda. Because – and let’s face it – the reason why Republicans are in the doghouse is largely because they talk all conservative when they run for office, and they go full-on liberal when they get to Washington DC. How else can you explain the deficits that were run-up during the Bush administration? How else can you explain the stranglehold that was allowed to exist in energy production while Republicans were in control of everything?
When you hear even the most politically disconnected individual claims that there is little difference between Republicans and Democrats, you shouldn’t dismiss the comment. Sometimes the most passive observer can see a problem to which your average insider may be blind. I know that I have been slow to grasp this tiny bit of wisdom. I, like many others, have thought that a third-party solution will only put Democrats in power. Well, that’s partially true in the short term. In reality, sticking to a two-party system is only going to breed more liberals.
As conservatives, we embrace competition. Competition is a good thing. Competition weeds out the weak or the inept. However, conservatives have for the longest time turned their back on competition in the political marketplace. We’ve done this because, unlike the tyranny-loving liberals out there, we’ve placed ourselves on defense. Liberals have been on the offense for some time now, and even in defeat they’ve kept on the offensive. Now, they control it all. We Conservatives cast out lot with people we disliked because they were less offensive than the people who hate this country. And over the past eight years, the Republicans became complacent, and started to take us for granted. Cripes, even now they STILL take us for granted.
Anyone who knows about conflict will tell you that you cannot win a war in defense alone. Conservatives need to go on the offensive. And I can guarantee you, the present Republican Party isn’t all that interested in taking up our cause. No, their agenda is pretty simple: to win and keep a majority in the government. How they achieve that is secondary. It is the reason why liberals like Olympia Snow and Dede Scozzafava are tolerated within the party in the first place.
Again, how else do you explain the likes of McCain, Colin Powell, and Dede Scozzafava? The latter is outright proud of being a liberal.
If you doubt me, all you need to do is hear Newt Gingrich proclaim it in his own words:
Newt Gingrich endorses Dede Scozzafava in NY-23 House race
By Mark Weiner / The Post-Standard
October 16, 2009
Washington — In a major coup for her campaign, Republican Dede Scozzafava today will pick up the endorsement of Newt Gingrich, one of the nation’s leading conservative figures and the architect of the “Republican Revolution” in the mid-1990s.
“The special election for the 23rd Congressional District is an important test leading up to the mid-term 2010 elections,” Gingrich said in a statement to supporters. “Our best chance to put responsible and principled leaders in Washington starts here, with Dede Scozzafava.”
The endorsement is important for Scozzafava, a social moderate, as she attempts to hold onto a conservative base eroded by Doug Hoffman, the Conservative Party candidate in the thee-way 23rd District race.
A Siena Research Institute poll released Thursday found Hoffman, who claims he is the “real Republican” in the race, gaining ground with the support of 23 percent of voters in the 11-county district.
Scozzafava was favored by 29 percent and Democrat Bill Owens by 33 percent of likely voters in the poll conducted Sunday through Tuesday. Scozzafava led the pack by 4 percentage points only two weeks ago.
Hoffman has mounted a late surge in the special election with endorsements by prominent conservatives that include former Republican Sen. Fred Thompson; Campaign for Working Families founder Gary Bauer; and the conservative Club for Growth in Washington, D.C.
Scozzafava’s candidacy is also reported to have triggered a deep divide among House Republicans, with some of the most conservative members refusing to support her campaign.
But Gingrich, who served as Speaker of the House from 1995 to 1999, wants to unite the party. He sees Scozzafava and the Upstate special election – the only House race in the nation this fall — as the best hope for Republicans to start a comeback and regain control of Congress.
Gingrich is apparently willing to overlook Scozzafava’s support for same-sex marriage and abortion rights.
“The Republican Revolution in 1994 started very much like what we see today,” Gingrich said in his statement. “Like then, our country is reeling from misguided liberal policies, high taxes and out-of-control spending. This special election in New York’s 23rd Congressional District could be the first election of the new Republican Revolution, but we need the momentum to get it started.”
Gingrich noted that Scozzafava agrees with him on many of the key issues of the day, including her opposition to a cap-and-trade bill to limit pollution associated with climate change.
Scozzafava is seeking to fill the seat vacated by Army Secretary John McHugh, who was among only eight Republicans in the House of Representatives to support the bill, which narrowly passed earlier this year.
McHugh said he voted for the bill because Democratic leaders agreed to include provisions to set new limits on the pollution that causes acid rain, which has damaged lakes and forests across the Adirondacks — a large part of the sprawling 11-county district.
Yes, Mr. “Reagan Revolution” and the architect for the Contract for America throwing in with a liberal. But this isn’t the first time. Gingrich has cozied up with Nancy Pelosi and Bill Clinton in the past, not to mention a brief trial balloon with the whole “green economy” fraud before realizing he was committing political suicide. Then, when “green economics” was revealed for the turd it truly was, Gingrich came to the revelation “Drill Here, Drill Now.”
Yes. What a true believer.
Last time I checked, liberals didn’t give a flying rat’s a** about “getting along” with Republicans. No Republican in their right-frickin’-mind should concern themselves with getting along with a Democrat.
So, the final assessment tells us that the Republican Party has been overrun with proud liberals (Olympia Snow, Dede Scozzafava), spineless moderates (Lindsey Graham, John McCain), outright hypocrite frauds (John Ensign, Mark Foley) and Conservative turncoats like Gingrich. Somewhere in there, real Conservatives are hanging on by their fingernails.
Now, you can try and “fix” things from the inside, which most likely won’t work. Take a look at the political climate. Republicans ran as moderates, and chased the moderate vote in 2008; they got pummeled. There is no one in the Republican Party, at present, who is touting a Conservative message. Actually, there are more than enough Republicans who denounce people like Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, and Mark Levin…you know, the people essentially carrying the water for Republicans. Unbelievable!
Do you see Democrats going after their own kind? No. In fact, what you DO see coming from Democrat campaigns are Conservative notions like tax cuts.
Frankly, it is my opinion that the Republican Party, at present, is absent all hope. And while I have been hesitant in the past to abandon the Republicans, it is clear to me that continuing to support a bunch of anti-Capitalist, anti-American losers like Scozzafava, and a bunch of mealy-mouthed traitors like Newt is only going to make things worse. So, we Conservatives need to go back to our roots, and our foundational beliefs. We need competition. We need to either sink the Republican party, or squeeze the liberals right out of them like one might squeeze puss from a zit. Working from the inside has clearly shown that it doesn’t work.
Enter third-party voting.
So what’s being done in the NY-23 race is actually a step in the right direction. When a liberal Republican had to compete with an actual Conservative, her following dried-up like a bowl of water in Death Valley. I advocate that Conservatives should do this more often.
Will Democrats win elections in the short term? Maybe. But not in the long term. In the long term they will end up being marginalized just like “moderates” (who are little more than liberals who can’t bring themselves to be proud of what they are). That’s because, as the health care push-back and TEA parties have shown, Conservatives are still strong. There is a lot of buyers remorse out there over Baby Doc Obama, because people who normally follow Conservative principles thought that they were voting for a guy who was going to stop things like deficit spending.
Ha ha. Fooled you! Once a liberal always a liberal.
We need to learn from our past mistakes. Walking away from Republicans until they flush the hypocrites and liberal turds like Gingrich and Scozzafava is a way to accomplish that task. Third-party Conservative candidates are the competition we need in the marketplace of political ideals, and as we’ve seen with the snivelling, slinking, whining retreat of Dede Scozzafava, it works.
